The history of the classic, foldable webbed lawn chair dates back to the post-World War II era. During the war, there was a boom in the production of aluminum that was used in the structural framing of aircraft. After the war, manufacturers sought other uses for the strong, lightweight material and one of the resultant designs was the classic aluminum-framed, folding lawn chair. The minimalist design was also informed by the stripped-down functionalist designs of the early modern period. The affordability and usefulness of the design made the chairs an omnipresent household staple by mid-century. Over the years, many copies have been made and quality has waned, inspiring Gary Pokrandt and his grandson Andrew to set up manufacturing based on the original methods in Fort Pierce, Florida, reviving a classic with its integrity intact.
